. sitting in tonight, chris haze. good evening. >> good evening. thank you for staying with us the next hour. rachel has the night off. >>> the nuclear crisis in japan is still volatile tonight. there have been numerous developments today. we'll get to those shortly. we begin with something you should never have to ask, something that should never be a question. are we at war? yes, we are at war in iraq and afghanistan, and maybe sort of in pakistan as well. but are we at war again in another middle eastern country? it is not a provocative rhetorical question, it is one so-called no fly zone over libya and to take all necessary measures to protect civilians under attack. faced with threat from moammar gadhafi of a massacre of his own civilians, united nations approved military action against libya, which is a big fricking deal. for us, for the united nations, for the region. yet what made last night so eery and strange was that this big, historical moment, this commitment by a number of nations to use force, fell into the american political conversation like a pebble into a well. we just com
is working frantically to prevent nuclear meltdowns. greg palkot joins us live north of tokyo from the latest on the recovery efforts. >> reporter: that japanese prime minister went on to say it's going to take the determination of people like the folks in these coastal town in northeastern japan and people throughout the region to deal with the situation. they are getting hit on all fronts. as you noted there is a nuclear catastrophe up the coast from where we are. today we saw another nuclear reactor stricken by the earthquake that hit here on friday. sea water had to be poured into the reactor to cool it down to avoid a full scale meltdown. still evacuation of the region around this nuclear reactor complex continues and the screening for radiation poisoning also continues as the death toll builds. yesterday we heard from a police official in one region in this area, he said, hey, i think there is about 10,000 people from my region. he said today, i think there is about 10,000 people dead in my region. people are surviving as we move around this area, they are finding harder and harder to s
senator jerry moran, senate of appropriations, joins us now. senator, welcome to the "glenn beck program." nice to meet you, sir. >> good to be back with you. thank you for the opportunity. >> judge napolitano: what is the latest, senator. it gather that the vote has been put off again, that there is a republican measure on the floor, democratic measure on the floor and the senate is not going to vote on it now until tomorrow. is that the case? >> the expectation was there may have been a vote this everything. it now appears it's carried over until tuesday morning. the expectation is that there will be two proposals, one what you call the paltry $61 billion preduction. hr-1, sent to us in the senate by the house of representatives. >> judge napolitano: great. >> then the even more paltry $6 billion cut suggested by president obama and democrat leaders in the senate. and there will be a vote on each one of those. my guess is that neither one of them will receive the 60 votes necessary to move forward. and then we're once again back to negotiations with i suppose democrat leaders. and perh
conduct against his own people? is it the people of the middle east who give us this special dispen sags to enforce our will on the region? has there been a demonstration, a mass uprising demanding that we step in, act to overthrow gadhafi, one of their own? is it the people we care about? and is it the mideast? and with what special constitutional authority does the president act here? what authority the people of our region? the people of our own country. these are good questions to ask. why are we not hearing them asked? that's hardball for now. thanks for being with us. more politics ahead. >>> good evening, i'm jake huber. the stakes have been dramatically raised regarding a bloody struggle in libya. last night the u.n. security council approved a no-fly zone over libya. today, gadhafi responded by calling an immediate cease-fire. one way, gadhafi is a master of propaganda and misinformation. late this afternoon, al jazeera reported that pro gadhafi forces were still advancing anyway and 30 miles away from the rebel-held city of benghazi where gadhafi had promised to show, quot
senator mike lee will be joining us in a couple of moments. the federal government charges 18 cents a gallon in tax at the pump. nothing to do with getting the oil to you. should we pay that and should the government reduce that tax when oil is spiking 33% in two weeks? >> most of the push i hear, people all wanting to raise the tax we're lucky if we keep the tax where it is, probably what we need to do is have a government friendly to business. we all need electricity. we all need gasoline for our cars. but we have a government right now that i think is the most antibusiness government or administration that we've had in my lifetime >> yet, the president appoints someone like bill daley, the brother of the soon to be exgovernor of chicago and former senior vice president, jp morgan chase to put on the front of being in favor of business. the president went along with keeping the bush era tax rates where they were in the lame duck era of congress. claiming that he is in favor of this. his words don't always match up with what he is doing. >> he claims he wants to do something about
accidents. tomorrow's show comes with a seat belt for your use at home. now it's time for "the ed show." >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." tonight from new york this is what's on the table. commentary on the president's performance coming up. republican extremists like governor scott walker of wisconsin are getting democrats fired up. good for us. is it time to call this a liberal awakening in america? i hope so. donald trump is still banging his drum about the president's birth place. so he returns to the takedown tonight. congresswoman michele bachmann and a bunch of other republican presidential hopefuls were in iowa this weekend letting their freak flag fly. but this is a story that has to be fired up first tonight. president obama clearly, clearly laid out our military involvement in libya during his address from the national defense university in washington, d.c. earlier this evening. the president was quick to label the villain. >> moammar gadhafi. he has denied his people freedom, exploited their wealth, murdered opponents at home and abroad and terrorized
